by Florence Scovel Shinn
With the timeless wisdom of a New Thought classic, Florence Scovel Shinn’s The Game of Life and How to Play It is now available in a new edition that will appeal to readers looking to make positive, tangible changes in their lives.
In this classic bestseller, Florence Scovel Shinn helped to define the personal success genre. Written in the new thought tradition, her message is simple yet transformative—we receive back what we put into the world through our actions, energy, and attitudes. Negativity and pessimism are returned in kind, but by switching the script in favor of positive attitudes and affirmations, we are able to manifest success and joy in everything we do.
Life, Shinn tells us, is not a battle of us against the world, but rather a game of giving and receiving. What we give to the world we receive back—whether that be the dark weight of fear and inhibition or the freedom of joy and empowerment. This new edition of The Game of Life and How to Play It combines the text of Shinn’s original edition with a sleek design that will inspire a new generation of readers.
